Help me put this NAS together?

I currently have 6 SATA drives that I'm trying to put together in a nas box. Will this motherboard
and this power supply
be able to deal with it? Are there cheaper ways of going about this?

I'll be running everything off a USB stick/OpenFiler, and this will only serve as a file server. I was surprised to see that there weren't any budget end motherboards with a lot of SATA connections. Are there any motherboard + expansion board combinations that I should be looking at?
Also, I haven't touched AMD for a long time off the (perhaps mistaken) belief that Intel sort of lapped them. As I don't care about speed, are there anything reasons to stay away from an AMD board like this?
